CFR starts preparing for the Champions League by offloading the high earners!
A rumor for a few months now, a certainty starting today: Sixto Peralta leaves CFR Cluj mainly because of his huge salary for Liga I (375.000 Euros/season), but for a small one, if we think of the clubs and players the Romanian champions will meet next season, in the Champions League!
The club asked Peralta if he’d agree to a mutual termination of the current deal and the Argentinian agreed to move on, after two years spent in Romania. A classy player, a complete box-to-box midfielder, gifted with technique and vision above the average, someone who should have never missed CFR’s first eleven when fit, Peralta was too often this season considered just a rotation player, in my opinion, but I have to admit that, even though I admire his skills, he rarely made the kind of impact on a game everyone expected from him.
Another player offloaded by CFR right after completing the double is the Brazilian centre forward Nei, who will return to Al-Shabab, in spite of a couple of decisive performances and goals, in the final matches of the season. Nei collected 20 appearances in the league and scored 5 goals in the process.
